China has said it “will never allow” any country to intervene militarily in a Taiwan Strait conflict, one day after Japan‘s deputy prime minister posited a collective defense of the self-ruled island by Japanese and U.S. forces. Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, called recent remarks by senior Japanese official Taro Aso “extremely wrong and dangerous,” saying they “undermine the political foundation of China-Japan relations.”
Aso, who is Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga‘s deputy as well as the country’s finance minister, told a political fundraiser in Tokyo on Monday that a Chinese invasion of Taiwan could be seen as an “existential threat” to Japan and its outlying islands.
“If a major incident occurs in Taiwan, it’s not at all unusual to consider it an existential threat [to Japan],” Tokyo’s Jiji Press quoted him as saying. “In such a case, Japan and the United States will have to work together to defend Taiwan.” Zhao said China “deplores and firmly opposes” Aso’s remarks, and had filed a diplomatic complaint with Japan. It was China’s third such protest in the space of four weeks, following separate incidents in June involving Suga and Japanese Deputy Defense Minister Yasuhide Nakayama—both over Taiwan.
I hope Japan is ready to go it alone because the Biden family is a wholly owned subsidiary of the CCP
from all the intelligence reports, I am surprised that they did not invade Taiwan in ’20. there is an excellent book by Dr. Harry Nimon: The Coming War with China: A Semi-Fictional Future, which is a very good read on the current situation in Taiwan. The veggie brain pedophile will surrender Taiwan without a fight even in words, because his handlers know the consequences of his refusal to defend the country. invading Taiwan is just the fore runner to the invasion of Japan. the ccp’s desire is to control and occupy the entire pacific. just off the southwest coast of the Philippines there are several restricted small islands. enjoy Dr. Nimon’s book, it is fitting for this current situation. America, stop drinking the Kool-Aid and wake up.
Just pure speculation but I think after the 2022 Olympics it will happen. China will gamble no one will risk war to save Taiwan. I’m not sure Ole Joe will be able to look up from his ice cream to notice.
Jan. 13, 2021 – Trump upsets decades of U.S. policy on Taiwan, leaving thorny questions for Biden
If you ever bothered to read anything besides the bull crap endlessly cranked out by right-wing propaganda outlets, you’d know that the current situation results from a deliberate provocation of China days before Trump left office. But you never do, so you don’t.
So left wing bull crap endlessly cranked out by left wing propaganda outlets is just fine by you.
You didn’t read the article, did you? So you don’t even know what information you’re rejecting, do you? And that pretty much applies to everything, doesn’t it?
This is how an idiot like Donald Trump was able to destroy the Republican Party.
Most of the problems in the world today are cause because you whiny, cowardly Democrats regard calling someone out for their aggressive or criminal activity as “provocation”. While politicians line their pockets with CCP bribes, China has been allowed to take control of the world economy and become a major military force. It is disgusting to have a president* that he and his family have investments in China and will not divest themselves of them. Even as he cuts the throat of our domestic energy production, he supports energy production in China and Russia because he and his corrupt family have investments in it.
*never lawfully elected, the result of massive fraud
China has been allowed to take control of the world economy and become a major military force.”
There could have been a Chinese flag flying over the Walmart parking lot and you still would have shopped there, while blaming the offshoring of jobs on unions, environmental protection, and democrats instead of corporate tax dodging and the quest for maximum corporate profits.
It’s not as if nobody ever told you. You just never listened.
The offshoring of jobs is a result of your party’s taxes, regulations and your union allies’ high wages and benefits. Democrats have run practically every US industry either out of business or out of the country. Trump was bringing them back AND holding China and other nations accountable for the unfair trade practices allowed to have built up over the years.
Corporations don’t pay taxes… WE do. It’s not as if nobody ever told you. You just never listened and believed money magically appears without hard work and risk. Typical liberal.
“Corporations don’t pay taxes… WE do.”
That would be a big part of the problem, Sherlock.
It’s astonishing how effectively a six-word meme like that can be at shutting down any analytical thinking.
On of the main points of incorporation is to insulate INDIVIDUALS from a variety of responsibilities, liabilities, and tax obligations.
Nice of you to admit that by raising taxes on corporations is really a hidden tax on all of us. Its why you support it so much as an idiot. Our government for years failed to protect us from the predatory China by tariffs on China and tax relief for the USA.
What about Taiwan gerbil breath?
Taiwan hasn’t been recognized by the world community of nations as “China” since 1971. Its continuing independence has depended on a precarious geopolitical balance that all concerned parties have taken care not to tip over. So, enter Trump, like a bull in a china shop. He screwed that delicate balance up only days short of his departure from the White House by deliberately provoking the People’s Republic of China. NOTHING was accomplished but adding tension to an already difficult situation. Trump defines the phrase, “worse than useless”.
The ancient country of Siam aka Taiwan, not recognized, how ignorant are you? Shall we dance, shall we dance, shall we dance? Directed by Walter Lang. With Yul Brynner, Deborah Kerr, Rita Moreno, Martin Benson. A widow accepts a job as a live-in governess to the King of Siam’s children 1956, Anna and the King of Siam, which is in turn derived from the memoirs of Anna Leonowens, governess to the children of King Mongkut of Siam in the early 1860s. Chinas wild hair meaningless and aggressive any claims baseless. We know you side with the commies, and the weakling china owned Bidens.
Thailand was formerly known as Siam. It’s located in the middle of the Indochinese Peninsula.
Taiwan is an island around 100 miles off the southeast coast of mainland China. Taiwan has also been known as Taipei.
Somebody down-voted reality.
You’re encyclopedia Britannica “statement” about Siam isn’t the issue.
Your garbage vomit from the Washington Post, is.
If you ever bothered to read anything besides the bull crap endlessly cranked out by [LEFT-WING] propaganda outlets.
Biden has endangered our allies, upended peace treaties, and opened out borders, killing kids.
Your solution to mask these truths?
Go f*ck yourself. You are a pro-Communist, genocidal idiot who’s voice has no weight in this discussion.
Back at you, Bud. Trump loves low information low education voters.
I’m surprised you have time to visit here. Figured you’d be busy trying to get that Avenatti for president bumper sticker off your Prius. They can be tough.
Comrade greggy poo: have you ever been to Taiwan ?? from your risible comments, you have not. The country is very vibrant and economically stable unlike ccp. Trade with the rest of the world is very active. In Taipei, there is a building call Taipa 101. It stands 509 m in height. Magnificent building and fully occupied.
Nathan Blue is soo correct in calling you a communist and glenoidal idiot. you would have been a good candidate for Himmler’s SS. it is very obvious that you HATE AMERICA.
Sock puppets on parade.
As is SOP, when Comrade Greggie has nothing of value to say, he says something stupid. Of course, he/she/it thinks he/she/it is the sharpest tack in the box.
Funny. The Taiwanese protested our rigged election and marched…with Trump signs.
Standard “accuse Trump/Conservatives of what the Left/Democrats are actively doing”.
Democrats support and enable third-world China in most things, including their aggression towards Taiwan.
Trump isn’t against Taiwan. Biden is.
As Hillary was on the board at chinamart 5 cents more expensive per pair of socks could lose a sale for an American maker as the Clintons were getting cash contributions . Not just the democrats have worked for China, dirty rich china Mitch. Walmart took out all smaller shops across the country just as Home Depo and Menards are putting small hardware stores and lumber yards on the endangered list.
Tax dodging? Who makes the tax codes and the trade deals, let me help you, its the lobbists. Taxes on corporations they simply pass it on to the consumer or offshore without any negative ramifications from DC.
You cant condemn China, cause you are a hamster brain commie.
Uh, no. Biden has abandoned out allied and sworn allegiance to China.
Trump is and was the opposite of that.
…when you think up is down, left is right, you quote the Washington Post.
Idiot Biden would have to ask Xi’s permission to respond to an invasion of Taiwan. No doubt China is confident that if they carried out an armed invasion of Taiwan the worst they would suffer is a mild rebuke from the UN.
It’s just like a Lefty/commie/Islamist lover to blame the wrong one when violence is threatened.
So, by Greg’s “standard,” those two poor Muslim girls in Texas were to blame for their own murders because their dad, an unassimilated Muslim, feared the girls were accepting Western ideals.
By Greg’s standard, Taiwan should fall to commie China because an American president called the commies out on their intellectual theft as well as their biological warfare against the West.
Australia, Japan and Taiwan are allies against commie China taking over any of their lands.
Is the USA, under the commie-loving Biden Admin an ally of any of those three great nations?
Th Chinese communist party should be destroyed and all party members jailed…
If China wanted to take over Taiwan, now would be the time. The CCP has the best government money can buy over here plus they have allies in big tech and the MSM. The person occupying the WH has serious cognitive issues. Our military is focused on wokeism instead of combat readiness while at the same time telling 2/3 of its force that they are racists and extremists. Add to that the fact that we are so divided that we are probably one or perhaps two steps away from CWII and all the stars are lining up for them. That scenario also applies to any terrorist group wishing to use the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to launch an attack given they are into symbolism. Although the terrorists don’t have the best money government could buy, they do have demokrat supporters in Congress and the MSM.
bitch slapping is the new form of martial arts in the us army.
I hope everyone takes not that any story that criticizing China has greg dropping some “nothing to see here” bomb to destroy the discussion.
He’s a paid CCP or FBI troll. Everything the Left is knowingly doing is being Psy-Oped by “blame Trump” delusions and lies.
